Petronet LNG is all set to commission 5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal at Kochi in Mid August. The company is also planning to set up a third LNG terminal at Gangavaram in Andhra Pradesh, with five MTPA capacity.
At present, the company imports 7.5 million tonnes of LNG annually from RasGas and is in discussions to import more after it expands its Dahej LNG terminal in Gujarat. Further, the company is currently increasing Dahej’s capacity from 10 MTPA to 15 MTPA, and expects the expansion to be completed by December 2015.
Petronet LNG is one of the leading players in oil and natural gas industry space. It has India’s first and largest LNG supply terminal located at Dahej.
